Venture out of Madrid to the nearby city of Toledo, the first capital of the Spanish Empire. This spectacular city is renowned for its rich cultural heritage and the peaceful coexistence of Christian, Muslim and Jewish people throughout the Middle Ages.
Overlooking the Tagus River, dramatic Toledo boasts spectacular views across the surrounding valley. Join your private guide for a walking tour of the city, exploring the narrow streets of the Jewish quarter and admiring the traditional steel workshops that the city is renowned for.
Visit the Gothic masterpiece that is Toledo Cathedral, which took almost 300 years to complete, and take in the incredible architecture and intricate design of its interior. Continue on to the Church of San Tome, where you'll have the chance to admire The Burial of the Count of Orgaz, the famed painting of El Greco, who lived in the city. End your tour at the Synagogue of Santa Maria la Blanca, which dates back to the 12th century and is thought to be a symbol of the coexistence of Toledo's three cultures as Muslim architects created this Jewish monument in an ancient Christian kingdom.
